I have the exact same problem

I have a nearly new D80, just bought this lens used off eBay. The seller claims he had no issues with it. What wound up happening with yours?

    Oops, I'm a newb, didn't realize these weren't threads. I clicked "I have a similar problem" to this message by feebobharry:

    Auto focus at full zoom not responding Nikon D80 with 18-200mm VR

    Nikon D80 with 18-200mm VR lense. Everything seems to work fine but if I go to full zoom the Auto focus does nothing. I can get over this by srtarting at a zoom that does focus and gradually working my way out to full zoom. Also, at full zoom the manual focus ring turns but does nothing to the focus.
    Not sure if I am doing anything wrong or I have a fault

If your lens has an aperture ring, do note that most of these lenses require the ring to be locked at a certain position for it to work. In the course of using the lens, you may have accidentally unlocked the aperture ring and moved it out of position. This is a common problem.

To fix this error, try this:

1. Turn off camera
2. Turn the aperture ring clockwise and then lock it
3. Turn on the camera

If you still encounter the same problem, repeat the same steps but turn the aperture ring counter-clockwise. Hope this helps.

Hello,

First try to contact the seller to resolve the issue, if no response you can file a dispute. The steps below outline this process.

How do I get my money back? If you would like a refund, start by getting in touch with your seller. Most sellers welcome the chance to work out any problems.

To request a refund, send the seller an email. Ask the seller to click Issue a refund beside your payment details. You can request a refund up to 60 days after you pay for your item.

Here's how to find the seller's contact information:
  1. Log in to your PayPal account.
  2. Click History.
  3. Click Details next to the transaction you want a refund for.

If you purchased your item on eBay, go to eBay's Resolution Center to open your dispute. Go to eBay and click Resolution Center at the bottom of any page

If your dispute is not resolved or escalated to a claim within 20 days it will be closed.

How do i return items bought ebay


Before you return, make sure you and seller agree and understand all the terms of the return. Even if you know the return policy by heart, confirm it with your seller. Make sure you know exactly what your refund or compensation will be. Most sellers do not refund shipping and handling charges, so don't ask for them, unless you believe the item has been grossly misrepresented. Even then, don't press the issue. Most sellers WILL refund your return cost if they've made a mistake. Even if the item IS misrepresented and you file a claim with PayPal, PayPal will require you to return it at YOUR expense before issuing a refund to you, so you have NOTHING TO LOSE by being polite and coorporative.

PACK YOUR RETURN SAFELY, even if your item is non-breakable. Any poorly packed item could be damaged in shipment. How would a seller know that it wasn't YOU who damaged the item and not the shipper? Even if the seller knows it was the shipper's fault, you have now given the seller the perfect opportunity to reneg on issuing a refund. You always have the option of going to eBay or PayPal for a refund, but your goal is to get your money back, and hopefully your return shipping too, so don't be hasty. In the box with the return include: your name, address and EMAIL, the eBay item number, date you purchased it, what method you used as payment, the amount you expect to be refunded to you, and how you have agreed the refund is to be issued. It makes it easier for the seller to trace and issue a refund, especialy if the seller transacts multiples of identical items.

CONTACT THE SELLER to let him/her know when the return was mailed, via what shipper, and about when it should arrive back. If there is a tracking number, provide that to your seller. If you've created a label through USPS and give USPS the seller's email, USPS will send the seller the tracking number automatically. Easier for everybody. DO NOT send back the item WITHOUT a tracking number. You don't want the seller to claim he didn't get the item back and thus refuse your refund. And if you go to PayPal for the refund, you're screwed. No tracking, means no washy.
FOLLOW-UP in the appropriate amount of time to see if the seller has received the return. If the item has been lost or delayed in shipment, it is YOUR responsibility to track it down. A short email will do: e.g. "Just checking to make sure you got those brown Ferragamo pumps, item number (xxxxxxxxxx) back. Let me know, thanks." Even if the tracking number shows the item has been returned, this is still a good idea. Some sellers get many returns a day and you don't want yours to get neglected.

Once you have received your refund, CONTACT THE SELLER to thank him/her and mention you would appreciate a positive feedback if one has not already been left. Even if you know you'll never trade with your seller again, say you look forward to doing more business. Keep stroking your seller until your glowing feedback is left. Once that's done you can go into eBay's community chat and spread the word about the seller's bad business practices, report to Safe Harbor, or anything else you feel appropriate. You goal is to GET YOUR MONEY and GLOWING FEEDBACK FIRST, before you do anything to get even.

I bought a watch through ebay and it does not work. The indicators are losing in perostrofi and the day does not work.


If the watch was described as 'working' or new, you may be able to recover your cost through eBay if the seller is not cooperating. Check their website for instructions on filing a claim if you are unable to contact the seller.

Received items purchased through ebay broken, how do I proceed?


Hi
Notify the seller about the broken items. Between you and the seller you'll need to determine if the items were broken by the shipper. If so, the seller will file a claim for the broken items. It's up to the seller whether he refunds you prior to the claim being approved. I usually refund as soon as possible. If the seller is unresponsive and/or he did not purchase shipping insurance then you'll nee to file a claim with eBay's New Buyer Assurance. Good luck

Disk wont spin


The lens assembly is directly associated with a non spinning disk issue.

Here was my situation.

I purchased a used PS2 slim from an ebay seller that had the disk read error. I bought another lens from another ebay seller and when installed it, the disk would not spin. I then replaced the new lens assembly with my old one and the disk started spinning again but I still had the disk read error. I contacted the seller to send me a replacement lens assembly for the defective one I received.

Bottom line is if your lens assembly is bad, the disk will not spin. You can replace the lens assembly for about $4 or $5 on ebay.

This mostly occurs to all slimline PS2 it is a common problem.

Bought a Micron GX3 off Ebay. One month later,


NO!! That's not reasonable, and the seller knows it!! I'm an avid ebayer and if they're going to try to charge you to make it right, you should file a Paypal or Ebay Resolution claim today, or the seller will draw it out until the 60 days has passed and you'll have no recourse at all. (I assume you've already left positive feedback by now).
If this has been over 60 days, pay him the $60. You can get the labor cheaper, but not with the part included. Pay him through Paypal so you can keep the option of a new claim

Contact Paypal. They have a claims resolution department. The bonus is that they are OWNED by ebay. You shouldn't have any problems receiving your refund.

Megxon k1, battery doesn't hold charge, battery was replaced by service agent but problem still exists. keeps showing no power.bought camera from seller on ebay, cannot contact seller for warranty claim...


Wow, I really hate being the barrer of bad news.

It sounds like the copper conductors (you can see these on both the battery and if you shine a flashlight into the battery slot) arent, well, conducting.

This is pretty common but not exactly a fix it yourself option.

I was going to suggest that you go to the site and speak with one of the customer service reps, but oh wow, have you seen this site? It really looks like it was built by a 12 yr old trying to induce eplilleptic seizures. They have contact information (only a phone number in taiwain and an email), but I dont know how much help they will really be...

The fact that you bought this on ebay is what made me cringe. I hate Ebay sellers that purposely sell lemons. If it has been less than 30 days, you can usually file a complaint with ebay (on their website) and get a refund from the seller.

Hope this is of some help,
TJ
